Operation Blessing International has been working in Liberia since 2006 and has been on the ground fighting Ebola on the front lines—using chlorine generators to produce a powerful disinfectant for hand washing and cleaning surfaces and aiding vulnerable children orphaned by Ebola. OBI has been manufacturing hundreds of gallons of the much-needed liquid chlorine (sodium hypochlorite) every day. This concentrated solution when mixed with water creates more than 4,000 gallons of hand washing solution daily. The chlorine is then delivered on rotation to Ebola treatment units and clinics in Liberia. Operation Blessing’s Ebola orphan program now helps many of the children who were orphaned during the height of the Ebola crisis. Through the program, more than 150 orphans receive the precious gifts of food, clothing and scholarships to give them hope for a brighter future.
There are many ways we provide relief and prevent Ebola in Liberia, such as:
Manufacturing and distributing chlorine to treatment centers, clinics and rural communities to combat the spread of Ebola.
Our Ebola Prevention Teams going door to door to inform at-risk families about the dangers of Ebola and teach them how to avoid spreading the virus.
Providing hand washing stations to families so they may disinfect their hands to help prevent the spread of Ebola.
Distributing medical equipment, antibiotics and protective gear to medical personnel in direct contact with Ebola patients.
Tasking our Ebola Prevention Teams with delivering food and supplies to help families under quarantine..
Aiding children orphaned during the height of the Ebola crisis with food, clothing and scholarships.
